Rachel Maddow pointed out that Michael Cohen is involved with everything Trump.
Rachel Maddow said, “But this raid could be anything. Reports on the raids of Cohen’s office and hotel room today are careful to point out that while it appears to be related to the hush money payment to Stormy Daniels, it could involve other matters as well. Michael Cohen pops up in all sorts of trump stuff that might conceivably have impacts the southern district of New York might want to execute an office raid for. Yeah, there’s that $130,000 paid to the porn star that set off all kinds of red flags at the financial institution it was routed through. And it also raises questions about potential campaign finance violations if that payment was made to try to influence the election. Then there’s the matter of a “Playboy” model, not Stormy Daniels, different lady, who also claimed to have had an adulterous relationship with she also got paid 150 grand for not speaking about her story. She now contends that contract she signed in that matter was fraudulent because the guy who she thought was her lawyer in that matter secretly behind the scenes was working with Michael Cohen. There was also that time Michael Cohen threatened a reporter who was digging into different allegations against trump telling the reporter, “I will make sure that you and I meet one day, and I will take you for every penny you still don’t have. And I will come after your daily beast and everybody else you that possibly know so I’m warning you tread very f-ing lightly because what I’m going to do to you is going to be f-ing disgusting. I’m going to mess up your life for as long as you’re on this fricking planet.” End quote. I should tell you back in the day Michael Cohen also lied to me, lied to us at the show about an environmental cleanup legal matter at a place that Don Jr. Used to own. I mean, it really could be anything.”
Michael Cohen is joined at the hip with Trump, so if Michael Cohen committed a crime, he did it for Trump. There is no plausible deniability for Trump when it comes to Cohen. Rachel Maddow nailed it. The FBI has gotten to Trump’s fixer, which means that they have gotten to Trump.
